Tumwater Veterinary Hospital was established in Tumwater in 1989 by Dr. Gregg Bennett, DVM. Started as a sole practitioner clinic, Tumwater Veterinary has grown with the support of the local community. Over the years, we have gradually expanded and have added along the way Dr. Lina Wachsmuth, Dr. Maggie Spath, Dr. Cathy Olson , Dr.Stephanie Swearngin, Dr. Dave Cordray and Dr. Katie Rawlings to our ever-expanding practice.
We care about your pets like our own.
